Over priced for what it is

This is an expensive if not over priced hotel. Me and my girlfriend stayed last weekend. The first room that they tried to put us in was small, threadbare carpet, felt unclean with tiles missing in the bathroom and paint peeling off the window sills. We asked to be moved which we did to a much larger and better decorated room though we did have to pay an additional ten quid to do this. NOTE: DONT BELIEVE THE PICTURES ON THE WEBSITE!

The staff were fairly friendly and helpful. The computers that the hotel offers for use by cutomers are not connected to a printer which means for a business user you may run into problems.

All in all not a bad hotel but could be better and cheaper..

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Granville Hotel

fantastic

from traceyse
We have just returned from a weekend in Brighton. After reading the reviews for various hotels we decided to go for the Granville. I am so pleased we did. We stayed in the Lace room for two nights. I can honestly say we could find no fault at all. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, cosy and with a fantastic view of the seafront. But the best bit had to be the jacuzzi bath. It was fantastic. After a hard days shopping it was just what the doctor ordered. Especially with a glass of wine to hand, and someone to share it with.
The breakfast was lovely, with a good choice of cooked breakfasts and a buffet of cereals,juices etc.
The only thing they do not mention on their website is that they have a lift. So it was a nice surprise when we got there to find out they had one. It made carrying all those bags so much easier
We will definatley be returning in the future.
The hotel is a five minute walk from the Lanes and shopping centre, and the pier.
Good restaurants are just around the corner, within easy walking distance.
All in all location great, hotel brilliant, food good.

The Granville was a delight.

from lhoward
After booking The Regency Room at the Granville, we were upgraded to The Brunswick Room due to a booking error.

The Brunswick Suite was nicely decorated, very clean and tidy, had plenty of storage space and had a fantastic sea view overlooking the West (or old Victorian) Pier.

The bathroom was fantastic. The jacuzzi bath will accommodate an average-sized couple comfortably, which is something you don't find too often in smaller English hotels.

The hotel is in an excellent location, our suite was highly enjoyable and romantic, underground parking was close by and hotel guests receive a 30% discount off their parking bill.

There were only two petty drawbacks to the room. The bath drained extremely slowly, and the electric kettle provided doesn't automatically switch off once it has boiled. The kettle does have a warning sticker, but it's nice to put the kettle on, jump into the shower and have hot water available for a cuppa when you're done. Granville kettles need a babysitter.

We hope to visit The Granville again in the future.

Very Enjoyable

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed November 2004. We booked at the last minute, and as there were no double rooms available, we were offered a suite for the same price, so we got a good deal. It was lovely, and we spent many hours in the fabulous double jacuzzi. The breakfast was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the final bill was exactly what we were quoted (no added extra charges). Few minor problems: the jacuzzi bath had a slight leak, the windows could have done with net curtains, and when we requested extra supplies of tea, coffee and milk for the room this seemed to cause confusion, but overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Would definitely book again.

Professional courteous staff - stunning rooms

from aduki
A wonderful hotel that stands way above the rest for rooms and service. Definitely one to visit again. Stay clear of certain other hotels in kemp town.

Charmed....eventually.

from rabl0nd0n
First impressions of the "Brighton Rock" room where not good, if fact we turned right around and went out looking for alternative accomodation! Fortunately we didn't find any and returned. The Granville then began to work it's charm on us. Yes every bit of furniture had seen better days, the bed was not the best quality and the decoration shabby (I have never seen such dirty windows), but it was fun and the huge jacuzzi bath (once it had been repaired) was sensational. We spent 4 hours splashing around, knocking back the very reasonably priced champagne and having an absolute riot of a time! The staff where the most helpful and charming I've ever met and we where provided with complementary breakfast in bed and another bottle of champagne in apology for the problems we experienced on the first night. Now if the room were redecorated, it would be perfect, as it is now, the quality of the finish makes it difficult to justify the £185 per night price-tag. But it was still a wonderful and unforgetable anniversary weekend for us, we would return and my girlfriend is still smiling from that night in the jacuzzi!

Rooms to Suit!

from sarah123
Stayed here in September 2004. Each room is differently themed - and differently priced - as described on the hotel website (-------------------------------------). Some of the rooms are in need of refurbishment, but all are clean. The rooms vary in size (the larger ones are very spacious) and are appropriately priced. The beachfront location is a 5-10 minute walk along the seafront to the centre of town. Whilst breakfast is inclusive, the restaurant is operated under seperate management. A special dietary request was made on booking, but this was not available at the restaurant. Despite communication with the hotel manager, this has not been resolved to my satisfaction. The hotel does not have its own parking, but has an arrangement for a price reduction at a nearby public car park.

A Gem

from Whatbob
Lovely. Stayed twice in 2001. Themed rooms are fun, especially Brighton Rock. great view of the old pier. Staff really helpful. Near to everything but far enough away to get a bit of peace. The veggie place downstairs was both wonderful and poor on separate nights.

Granville - lovely view

from SquibWidget
I stayed at the Granville in April 2004, in the Japanese room. At £105 per night it was pricey, but the view was spectacular. The room was small but clean, the bathroom was nice. Staff were very friendly & helpful and the bar was very good too. Room service was also great but the food was very pricey. I'd definately go again.

not accomodating-tried to get more nights out of potentail customers

from A TripAdvisor Member
Contacted this hotel after reading there enticing advertising litrature.

However I tried to book 4/5 rooms for 2 nights for collegues for a conference,was told could not do that as most people booked for a week, I explained that buisness expenses would not cover a week stay for a 2 day conference, was only offered 2 single rooms after that explanation.
was very disapionted. This hotel has lost a lot of potentail custom from this source - such a shame it looked a reasonble hotel

Go somewhere else

from A TripAdvisor Member
When we stayed at the Granville I was very dissapointed with the hotel for ?85 per night I thought it would be a lot nicer. We did not have a jacuzzi as other people haver stated in their reviews, we had a shower but no bath. Not sure if we just had a dud room? Superficially the room did look grandious but on closer inspection looked a bit shabby and was also fairly small. The central heating was noisy as well and kept us awake half the night.We went to breakfast, which tasted horrible and was cold so we could not eat it. The only saving grace was the cool little bar downstairs which had a great atmosphere, but you can visit the bar even if you are not staying at the hotel, (I would probably go there again.) To top it all off we found out we could have stayed st the Hilton for ?78 per night. Basically I have stayed in nicer ?50 per night hotels, go somewhere else!

Top Local Tips for Brighton

Bus/train and Brighton Centre Very good public services. You can leave your car and use them with ease. Daily ticket for the bus is great. Good train links to London.Brighton centre is good for concerts.

NIGHTIME ON THE STREETS OF BRIGHTON Be careful when walking the streets at night, there a lot of drug and alcohol problems in Brighton and you should always take taxis back and forth. Never walk on the beach at night

Parking Can be expensive......try the Regency Mews privatly run lock-up car park from Friday to Sunday for £20 well run and very safe. Close to seafront hotels.
